Release Date: April 4, 2005.
AbiWord is a word processing program similar to Microsoft Word. It is suitable for a variety of word processing activities and supports a number of document types including Microsoft Word, Word Perfect, Open Document (OpenOffice.org), Office Open XML (MS Word 2007), RTF, HTML, Palm and more. It includes both grammar and spelling checkers.
AbiWord is a lightweight and open-source application which provides users with a simple means of editing and creating text documents, with support for multiple formats.
The user interface is simple and familiar; you will quickly get acquainted with a standard toolbar, format, table, and extra bar. The program is equipped with basic features found in other similar products.
You can create a template document (e.g. business letter, memo, press release, resume, two columns), import styles, revert file to last saved date, change document properties, paste unformatted text, find and replace words, and go to a specified page, line or bookmark.
Aside from that, you can insert a break, header and footer, as well as tables, text boxes, table of contents, symbols, RDF links, mail merge fields, files, pictures or direction markers. The fonts, paragraphs, bullet points and text boxes formats can be altered, while you can also create and modify styles.
To conclude, AbiWord may not have multiple advanced features which are usually found in other, more popular word processors, yet it is clearly dedicated to first-time or less experienced users. It encloses comprehensive Help contents and the interface is clean, yet it could use some improvements.
